THE SUPERLATIVE
CHRONOMETER
At Baselworld 2015, Rolex introduced the new generation of its most
prestigious model, the Oyster Perpetual Day-Date, featuring a modernized
design with a 40 mm case as well as a new mechanical movement,
calibre 3255. The Day-Date 40 redefines the status of Superlative
Chronometer, established by Rolex in the late 1950s, with criteria for
accuracy on the wrist that are twice as exacting as those for an officially
certified chronometer.

Style of the Day-Date 40
A SYMBOL OF EXCELLENCE
AND PRESTIGE
Aesthetically, the Day-Date 40 inherits the evolutions that have marked the
history of this very charismatic watch: refined lugs and middle case, a
broad and clear dial, as well as an exclusive return to the President
bracelet that was created specially for the Day-Date in 1956 – now
redesigned to be even more closely integrated into the Oyster case.

Style of the Day-Date 40
PRECIOUS METALS
The Day-Date has always embodied prestige and exclusivity. A hallmark
of its nobility, the Day-Date’s Oyster case is produced exclusively in 950
platinum or in 18 ct gold. The bezel can be fluted, smooth or, on the
gem‑set versions, arrayed in the most beautiful of precious stones.

Spirit of the Day-Date 40
THE PRESIDENTS' WATCH
Launched in 1956 and built on the three pillars of Rolex: the Day-Date was
the first waterproof and self-winding chronometer wristwatch to offer a
modern calendar with an instantaneous day display, spelt out in full in a
window on the dial, in addition to the date. The exceptional precision,
reliability, legibility and presence of this prestigious model has made it the
ultimate status watch. The Rolex Day-Date has been worn by more
presidents, leaders and visionaries than any other watch. It is highly
distinctive, in particular thanks to its emblematic President bracelet with
an evocative name that, together with the eminent figures who have worn
it, ensured the Day-Date became known as the “presidents’ watch”.

Features
EMBLEMATIC DIALS
The Day-Date 40 stands out with a range of elaborate new dials, a
singular combination of high‑technology and traditional know-how. Thin,
laser‑etched motifs are applied to a traditional sunray finish for a
particularly sophisticated effect. New faceted and deconstructed Roman
numeral hour markers, with individually hand-positioned elements,
underscore the masculinity of this charismatic model. Demonstrating
Rolex’s unique expertise in the art of dial making, these watch faces are
exclusive to the Day-Date 40.

Features
PRESTIGIOUS PRESIDENT
BRACELET
Designed specially for the Day-Date at its launch in 1956, the elegant and
imposing President bracelet is inherent to the standing of the model.
Immediately recognizable on a wrist, this solid gold or platinum bracelet
with three semi‑circular links provides complete reliability and comfort. It is
now equipped with ceramic inserts inside the links, enhancing its
suppleness and durability. A concealed attachment beneath the bezel
ensures seamless visual continuity between the bracelet and case. The
new-generation concealed Crownclasp, opened with a hinged Rolex
crown, is the final aesthetic and functional touch to this sumptuous
bracelet.

Features
NEW-GENERATION
PERPETUAL MOVEMENT
The Day-Date 40 is equipped with a new-generation movement, calibre
3255, entirely developed and manufactured by Rolex for a superlative
level of performance. This self-winding mechanical movement is at the
forefront of the art of watchmaking. A consummate demonstration of Rolex
technology, with 14 patents, it offers fundamental gains in terms of
precision, power reserve, resistance to shocks and magnetism, ease of
use and reliability.

Features
SUPERLATIVE
CHRONOMETER
The green seal accompanying every Rolex watch is a symbol of its status
as a Superlative Chronometer. This exclusive designation attests that it
has successfully undergone a series of specific final controls by Rolex in
its own laboratories according to its own criteria, in addition to the official
COSC certification of its movement. This unique testing of the
chronometric precision of the cased-up movement, as well as of the
watch’s waterproofness, self-winding and power reserve, pushes back
the boundaries of performance and makes Rolex the benchmark for
excellence in mechanical watches. The green seal is coupled with a
five‑year guarantee which applies to all Rolex models.
